Guerrilla Gravity (GG) has just announced a brand-new mountain bike in their line, dubbed the “Trail Pistol.” GG is known for high quality, made-in-the-USA (Denver) mountain bikes, and the Trail Pistol will continue that legacy.

In keeping with the latest trends, the ‘Pistol will be available with your choice of wheelsizes: 29″ or 27.5+. According to GG:

“Don’t be held back by the man: pick the wheelsize that’s right for your life. Crush Mode and Plush Mode, accessed via the shock mount flip chip, optimizes the geometry and suspension for 29” wheel-ed crushing or 27.5 Plus wheel-ed plushness–just like the fine velour carpet on the walls of your favorite music venue.”

This flip chip is intended to maintain a consistent bottom bracket height no matter the wheel size–something that other 29/27.5+ bikes haven’t gotten right. Notably, since the flip chip controls the changes in geo from wheelsize to wheelsize, no fork swap is necessary when switching wheels.

The frame includes a water bottle holder--Aaron will be stoked!

The ‘Pistol will offer 120mm of travel, 16.9″ chainstays, and a 66.6-degree head tube angle with a 130mm fork installed. The ‘Pistol comes with a new (for GG) Horst Link suspension design that they’re marketing as the “Freedom Linkage Suspension Platform.”
